Hair Length Check 1

Hello again. I decided I want to try to grow my natural hair out longer. So I am going to document it, every year or half year to make sure I am progressing. I straightened it with a flat iron...( will only uses heat sparingly). But let's see my hair at its start....Now it is about eleven inches when I stretch it out.

Hope you are doing well!

Maybelline Color Tattoos

Maybelline Color Tattoos are some of my favorite eyeshadows. They last forever. I have a tendency to forget I have eyeshadow on and rub my eyes. These stand the test of not rubbing off. I love these I want them in all the colors. Hehe the only bad thing is that they are hard to blend and I would recommend using fingers to apply because they will not do well with brushes.

  •  Pink gold looks more gold on dark skin.
  • Painted purple is a pretty bright purple.
  • Bad to the bronze is a shimmery neutral color. One of my favorites.
  • Pomegranate punk is a light pink on my dark skin.
  • Electric blue is a beautiful navy blue.

Hope you are doing well!

Wet n Wild Lippie Swatches Part I - Neutrals, Red and Plum

Well, I am bored. And what better thing to do is play with your makeup. I had a post about wet n wild megalast lipstick swatches but I did not swatch them on my lips. Mainly because they were so similar in color that I got confused and did not want to figure it out., and I do not have a camera that can show the small shade differences well. All the swatches, I used a lip brush so not to use so much product. Too much product make my lips look  ashy unless I use lip gloss too. But here is my try, so here they are:

Neutrals: clockwise direction mocha-licious, spiked with rum, sandstorm, and in the flesh

  • These are all very neutral shades on dark skin. My lips are pigmented brown so it tones down the undertones.
  • Mocha-liscious is a brownish pink on me, a perfect neutral color.
  • Spiked with Rum has a slightly darker pink tone than mocha-liscious.
  • Sand Storm is more peachy and bright neutral.
  • In the flesh is a light pink more toned down shade.

Here are the plums and reds. Left to right: ravin raisin, cherry bomb.
  • Ravin raisin is a light plummy pink on me.
  • Cherry bomb is a standard red on me. Perfect undertones for my dark skin tone.

Hope you are doing well!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Fail

Here is a fail. Hardest mani yet. I tried to do a Christmas Sweater pattern but it is too intricate for me as most of the nails are not straight. I did okay on my index finger, but the rest are pretty messy.Heh oh wells I like the colors and from afar it looks cool, so I am keeping it on for a few days or tomorrow depending on how bored I get with it.

Hope you are doing well!

Christmas Nails Frenchy

Christmas themed nails for December are here!  I am going to try to do different Christmas Nails to get in the spirit. Here is a French tip Christmas strips. I used china glaze ruby pumps and a green from my mini nail art pens.

Eye of the Day: Orange and Yellow

Here is my eye of the day. I love this orange color. I think orange looks good on darker skin tones. I need to get more orange eyeshadow, like a shimmery one, or a more metallic one. Any suggestions? Hehe well I used the palette from wet n wild- art on the street. I used the yellow for the inner lid, the orange for the outer lid, and purple for the crease...(The purple is lame though, it has about zero pigmentation) I tried not to blend too much because the colors have low pigmentation and I did not want to erase the colors.

Hope you are doing well!

Swatches - Wet n Wild Art on the Street

This is Wet n Wild: art on the street. They are swatches without primer. This eyeshadow palette comes with colorful shades. I rarely see orange eyeshadow. But this is an okay palette. I think they are too chalky. I wish the purple was more pigmented as well. It barely shows up on the eye, even with primer.  Overall, I like the orange, green, and blue colors the best. So, I don't feel like it was a complete waste.
Hope you are doing well!

La Femme Blush Swatches

Here are some lovely blushes. I love la femme. I was not a blush person because the blushes never showed up on my skin. But these do. La femme blushes are perfect for dark skin. I have one mac blush in raizin but that is about all for other brands of blushes.

Russet, cinnabar, and sienna all look good for a natural glow.
Framboesia is the loudest color, very bright, use sparingly.

  • Brick Red is a brownish red.Cinnabar is a shimmery light brown.
  • Framboesia is a bright pink with sparkles.
  • Russet is a reddish brown some say a dude for raisin. It is good for natural flush.
  • Terracotta is a shimmery pinkish orange.
  • Heather is a matte beige. Good for highlights.
  • Coral is a pretty coral matte blush. The picture doesn't capture it well.
  • Grape is a dark mauve shimmer.
  • Peach is a light matte pink.
  • Bordeaux is a shimmery burgundy. Good for dark skin tones.
  • Sienna is a matte brown.
  • Mocha is a brownish matte pink.
  • Fuchsia is a medium matte pink.
  • Red is a bright shimmery red.
  • Mulberry is a pretty pink matte blush.
  • Orange is a beautiful matte orange. One of my favorites.
  • Plum frost is a shimmery bronze pink. I love this blush.
  • Coral spice is a shimmery light pink.
  • Golden Sunset is an online other beauty. A  bronze shimmery with orange undertone.
  • Orchid Ice is a shimmery medium pink

I love them all. I cannot pick my favorite.

They are inexpensive on Makeup Mania website. You can buy just that color for 3.50 and put them in a a palette. I bought a couple and then kept buying them because I loved the colors. I might depot them and put them in a palette but it is too much work right now. Anyways, Here are my swatches of my favorite blushes:

Nail Foil Art For People Who Fail At Nail Foil Art

Well, I always fail at foil art. The foils never transfers completely. And I am left with a sticky mess. Heh. Well to do foil art still you can do the no glue method, where you use regular polish and wait until it is tacky but not dry, then place the foil on places on your nail to grab the foil art. Not all that foil will come off but at least you have a cool design. Here is my work. I am still looking for a good topcoat though. This is my Christmas holiday design. Red and gold. I used china glaze - ruby pumps as the red.

Hope you are doing well!
